  8. 8. Getting Started Rationale for Regulating Defense Exports The U.S. Government views the sale, export, and re-transfer of defense articles and defense services as an integral part of safeguarding U.S. national security and furthering U.S. foreign policy objectives. Authorizations to transfer defense articles and provide defense services, if applied judiciously, can help meet the legitimate needs of friendly countries, deter aggression, foster regional stability, and promote the peaceful resolution of disputes. The U.S., however, is cognizant of the potentially adverse consequences of indiscriminate arms transfers and, therefore, strictly regulates exports and re-exports of defense items and technologies to protect its national interests and those interests in peace and security of the broader international community.
  9. 9. Legal Basis 22CFR122 § 122.1 Registration requirements. (a) Any person who engages in the United States in the business of either manufacturing or exporting defense articles or furnishing defense services is required to register with the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls. For the purpose of this subchapter, engaging in the business of manufacturing or exporting defense articles or furnishing defense services requires only one occasion of manufacturing or exporting a defense article or furnishing a defense service. Manufacturers who do not engage in exporting must nevertheless register.
  10. 10. Whether or not you actually export, ITAR requires that “U.S. persons” engaged in the manufacturing and / or exporting of defense goods and services MUST register with the DDTC.
  11. 11. So, how do you that – register, that is? <ul><li>What’s the process? </li></ul><ul><li>What’s the cost? </li></ul><ul><li>How much time does it takes? </li></ul><ul><li>How long is the registration valid? </li></ul><ul><li>What files and record keeping are required? </li></ul><ul><li>And, if I want to export—what do I do next? </li></ul>
  12. 12. But, More than ITAR . . . <ul><li>Are you surprised to hear there’s more than the State Department’s DDTC and ITAR? </li></ul><ul><li>Dual-Use Items are controlled by the US Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security BIS </li></ul>
  13. 13. 4 things determine if an item is export controlled <ul><li>What you sell (EAR, CCL, ECCN, USML) </li></ul><ul><li>Where it is going (Commerce Country Chart) </li></ul><ul><li>Who will receive your item (lists) </li></ul><ul><li>What it’s end use will be </li></ul>
  14. 14. How determine which agency controls what? <ul><li>This may well be your AHA! moment for today </li></ul>
